Race Details
For 2021 and the first time in OMRAs 50 year history of running Chase boat events we are introducing a fixed distance to the event. The intention is to add a new dimension to chase boat events. Allowing national and international class records to be set, a challenge of beating times, and also competition between racers from one day to the next.

The Saturday will be run in class order, boats within each class selected at random to run. A 10km course, 5km each way from West Bay heading West along the coast towards Lime Regis. Using GPS markers to set the buoys. The times from Saturday will then dictate the running order for the Saturday, regardless of class. A sort of qualifying if you will. Thus meaning you could gain an advantage with preferred morning conditions for the Sunday.

However your fastest time from EITHER day will count towards your result. So if you have an unreliable boat on the Saturday, or overcooked it a bit perhaps on the waves. You get another chance Sunday to improve your time. This also allows for people to enter only Saturday or Sunday only and still compete also.
